So there’s this feature on Instagram and basically where you can monitor how much time you spend on the app “actively” on a daily basis!
A user can even opt in for the platform to warn them when they are approaching a certain time frame. How cool is that right?
Now I know that I spend A LOT of time on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter because it’s apart of my job as a social influencer. However, I will admit to you guys that it’s eating away at my soul.
Some days I could be in the best mood, then I get onto a platform and see something discouraging and I have a mental shift!
When something has the ability to control your energy, then it’s “bad for business”.
So of course when I found out that IG had this feature I has to check it out, and it said that I spend a total of 2 hours and 31 minutes DAILY just on Instagram. That’s not including Twitter and Facebook!
That’s over 14 hours per week, just on one site! OH MY GAH.
No wonder this thing has such power over my mental…..
And since posting the image above people all over have been asking me how they can check there insights as well.
Here are the steps:
Click on the 3 lines in the top right corner on your IG home page
Click on “Your Activity” from the drop down menu
Your daily average time will be in the middle of the page
This was definitely a wake up call for me!
Someone really close just expressed to me that he thinks I should take a day from social media, just to focus on “living life” outside of it. And since it’s work, I’m always against it. However, he also brought up the point that I don’t spend “2 hours” per day with God….. which was a WOWZER because it’s true!
Social media is responsible for making “introverts” like myself WORSE, and it’s time for me to start living life a little more offline.
